, with russia today, with the bbc and cnn international. there has been a procession in the developing world -- a perception in the developing world that media has been dominated by cnn and bbc. i think there has been in the last 10 years a situation where a lot of countries including china are saying that we need to have part of this pie. we need to be able to present alternatives to what the bbc and cnn and the big players are doing. host: here is an e-mail -- let's take a look at a clip from a show called 24-china about asians in america. >> the u.s. asian population has risen in recent years at rates rarely reveled in america. as a modern immigration wave that pushed the group from less than 1% of the population in 1965 to a record 18. million in 2011, more than five- fold increase. host: was that story of interest? guest: that is from our correspondent and los angeles. essentially, a lot of stories that involve asia and americans are very much part of the agenda of cctv news. the survey that that piece came out of was that the asian- american community is now the largest community -- m
and cnn international. there has been a perception that media, internationally, for many years has been dominated by cnn and bbc. i think there has been, particularly in the last 10 years, a situation where a lot of countries, including china, are saying, we need to have parts of this pie, if you will. we need to be able to present alternatives to what the bbc and what cn and and the big players are doing. host: 1 at person rights and, cctv does this. let's look at a show called 24 china and a recent story filed about asians in america. >> the u.s. asian population has risen at rates rarely reveled in america. it is a modern immigration wave that has sent agents from less than 1% of the population in 1965 to 18.2 million in 2011, a more than 543 -- increase according to a new service called "the rise of asian- americans." host: why is that story of interest? guest: that is from our correspondent in los angeles. a lot of stories involving asians and americans are part of the agenda of cctv news. the interesting survey about -- that that came out of was that the occasion-american communit

that was taking place last thursday. host: dennis has something to say about this, saying that cnn and fox bought a report on health care, saying that they were not about news, but about spain. saying that it is blame time for cnn and their dismal ratings. back to the issue of this los angeles times -- "the l.a. times" editorial. cindy, good morning. caller: how are you? host: fine, thanks. caller: do you not have a job to correct these people who call in? the man from south carolina, this is one of the biggest lies a man ever told. he was not raised but -- by two muslim fathers. he never met his father except one time in his life. you have to stop them from calling in and lying. as far as visions, yes, both of them have visions. the mitt romney vision is to embrace the paul ryan budget. looking at that, the want to take from older people who have worked. the tape from people who cannot get out of their homes. retired people. people without jobs, bringing meals to senior citizens. children getting hot meals. they want to take medicare and turn it into a voucher. mitt romney does not have anything

rigidhrow away. the study is mature country truly great. host: we saw a cnn peace earlier that said -- that acknowledged that america may not be the leader in some aspects whether it is education, or health care. is the third rail of american politics, they say america might not be the greatest country in the world. caller: i think it is very sad and it strikes me that it is juvenile. it is almost like little child who have to see their mother or father has a big god-like figure because they take care of them. in the world of adults, we can learn from people of other cultures. i want to mention to the person who said obama has lost our reputation, i travelled extensively. i was in nine countries last year and every one of them, people praised obama. he is very well-respected around the world. the people so unhappy with him, it is sad that have to be some negative when we have a president -- he is only one person. he is doing his best as far as i can tell to give his dignity as people. host: let's hear from maryland, a republican caller. caller: good morning. happy birthday to our co

. host: this headline from cnn. this issue is something voters will be voting on. guest: it is a marathon. every mile will not decide the election, but opinions are foreign. i do not think that romney's religion is a central problem. in 2008, the american electorate showed they would vote for people who were unconventional. i think the romney problem stems from inability to connect and understand people. the interview that did not get a lot of attention but what was interesting was when he was hobbies.out his wife's cop her horse is in the land. he said he did not even know what day it was at. the normal voter looks for how a husband answers. that is the problem he has. he does not relate to people as a person or a human. he relates to people in getting the job done. guest: if you ask a key question, who will do a better job? in every poll, mitt romney leads by double digits. so all those components lead to a close race. this is exactly what we're talking about here which is everyone is going to get wrapped up in the day to day and it's going to be some good brace for barack obama, some g

believe on the thursday afternoon. a colleague of mine from cnn coined the phrase, dr. no finally got a yes. ron paul has been pushing this bill to audit the fed for quite some time and it did pass the house by a fairly partisan vote. i did not know the exact numbers of the top of my head. his son rand paul, senator from kentucky, is pushing the bill in the senate. as of now it is show it -- sort of an allied air issue for the senate and probably not going to receive a vote there unless senator paul -- he has been pretty tough in his fight so far. so, he may try to get a vote on it as an amendment to one of the bills that they will have to tackle in the next two to three months. host: from fox news, the final vote was 327-98. eight co-sponsors, democrats, actually voted against it. caller: ice -- guest: i stand corrected. a big win for dr. paul. probably one of his most and for the legislative victories so far. will become law? probably not. but the issue about the fed, its handling of the bailout, the role in the bailout of four years ago continues to resume with a very intense group
unnoticed. in my point, and i wrote a piece on the cnn website, if the top 1% lost 40% of their worth, we would have suspended habeas corpus. the supreme court would have been in session. it would be a tragedy we could not mention. the job creators, they lost 40% of their own worth. what will happen at the hamptons? the median family in this country lost 40% of its entire net worth in a two-year. , and nobody yawned. host: rick is on the phone. caller: i would imagine both of you are rich men, and neither of you have said what the income for the middle class should be. in florida, my wife and i make $70,000 a year. $70,000 in new york city would not make you middle class. guest: that is what we talk about. if i live in florida, and i have a condo that night alone, and i have $60,000, $7,000 in retirement income, and i'm going -- $70,000 in retirement income, i'm doing pretty good. if i am doing that in new york, i'm like the lady in cincinnati making $30,000. we address that in the book. guest: we are inclusive. income alone is $125,000 for a family of four, but we say income does not wor
to me and many of you, and i was out front, and i was the idiot who saw the cnn twitter and told everyone we won, and everyone went wild then i have to tell everybody we lost the -- lost. the takeaway that is tragic is there is no area safe from politics. we do not and meaningful constitutional protection for individual freedom or limitation on the power of government. that is frightening and tragic. if everything is pockets and politicians wheeled on limited power, unchecked by the constitution, then the solution is to work even harder in politics and make sure the people who win and have unlimited power are people who will choose not to use it or to restore the checks that we have lost, and that is why it is critical that we work harder to get more engaged and make sure that this election cycle is one that we win because this inflection point we are at where we cannot count on an external check of the democratic process makes it more critical than ever, unfortunately, there are more of lost them there are of them. if we work hard, we will win. i urge you to do everything we pos
on on the ground. news organizations began to interview her. the guardian, bbc, cnn, she became a bit of a celebrity in the journalism world. then one day in june a relative of hers posted on her blog that she had been kidnapped by state security or something like that. immediately people began to mobilize. they began to put together facebook pages to support her cause, creating avenue tars for people to news solidarity. some organized protests at the syrian embassies. y was very -- was very interested in finding people who knew her to find a sense of how much danger she might truly be in. as i started asking around i started getting messages from my contacts in syria and they were saying well, i'm part of the local gay community here and i never heard of here. others would say i haven't met her. each would pass me onto someone else. i got to the point i was saying does anyone know anyone who has met her in person? it final by -- finely got to the point where i contacted the reporter at the guardian who did the very first interview, interviewed her in person and he said what can you t
? we just nt to know. for that, msnbc, cnn have been lighting actress in st. we are going after individual personalities and being mean to muslims. this is nothing about being mean to muslims. a lot of muslims are upset about radical terrorism, too. we believe the administration needs to keep the safety and security of the american people #one. that is why i am in trouble now. every day i am in trouble for something. who cares? >> thank you so much for being here. i will make a couple of comments and then i want to ask a question. i grew up in private schools until a third grade and i went to public school. i feel like the education of our generation is deteriorating under the public-school system. i listen to david barton a couple of weeks ago and he talked about christian fundamental values that were placed in our founding fathers and how our first congress made a bible. i wanted asked, as far as reforming the public schools and moving more toward privatization of schools, do we have anything going at this point? >> thank you for asking that question. phyllis has been one of t
." a former actor, white house correspondent and interviewer post for cnn, he now serves as director of the school of media and public affairs of the george washington university. please welcome that f -- please welcome back frank sesno. [applause] >> how are you? thank you very much. i am happy to be back to host this wonderful series on the revolutions of the 21st century. the internet and social media represent the most remarkable and transform a technologies we can imagine, certainly since the creation of the automobile, the telephone, the light pole, the newspaper, just about anything we can imagine. in a few short years, it has become impossible to think of life without these technologies. they have become utilities in our lives. what lies ahead? where is this all taking us? where might we end up? i'm here with three guests who studied this topic and committed this topic on just about every angle, from communications, journalism, security, safety, commerce, innovation, and on and on it goes. we will get started. it is great to see you all. it is a pleasure to be here. i thought
of foolish. host: the "new york post" points out that mark whitaker said he was disgusted after cnn it mistakenly reported first that the supreme court had overturned the law and david hinckley looking at the ratings troubles with cnn but the biggest buzz they got was from its healthcare ruling gaffe. you want to get the story first, you know and you want to get it right. guest: it is a problem. we live and die by hits and being quick is the way to be first and being quick is also the way to be wrong. guest: i work for politico and nobody ever accused us of being slow to jump on a story. but on thursday morning we had reporters all over the court and outside the court and people in the newsroom and we waited until we had heard what the justice, what justice roberts said and had read the decision. you needed to read to page four of the decision to get to what actually happened. we made the decision and going in it thursday morning and then as everything was happening, it was about 10:20, that we would wait the extra three or four or even 10 minutes to make sure we got it right. but i
so much. i've had the opportunity to talk to both in many settings, on cnn and since, so i am very looking forward to how you and -- how you will connect the dots in terms of america's role in the world, making the case for diplomacy and development, and where you see this all going. it is hot in washington now. a strange season. you are famous for so many things. especially those pins that you wear. tell us about the pain you are wearing. >> i am wearing a frog tonight, either because we have to leap over the problems that plague this budget, or to make sure that public assistance does not croak -- foreign assistance does not croak. [laughter] [applause] >> where is your pain? >> she has all of the painins. >> when calling and i -- colin and i were on the committee, she would walk in with all his medals, and i was in your female civilian, i realized i needed some help -- in your female civilian, i realize i wanted some help. >> a lot of pins, carter did rich the preserved. secretary albright, let's dig into this. and when you were a secretary, there were serious efforts in congres
overnight. we gave ideas to comply and allow for extensions in certain cases. cnn will be phased in and the department would try to comply with the law. if granted itself a two-year extension for allport's citing apple's that the department never tried to overcome. it repeat a lot of the same objections we heard years ago. u prefer a layered approach. i do not think anyone would have a problem with that as long as the department's efforts to not stop with the high risk cargo. checking carter you think is high risk is only an advocate. -- checking cargo that you only think is high-risk is an adequate. you must check 100% at airports. why shouldn't the same principle holds true for maritime containers? that is a lot. that is what you should be working to achieve. i am concern that they decided they did not agree with the law and has not made good faith efforts to resolve the potential challenges. it is justified in extending deadlines. there are security companies that want to work with the department on implementing the law. they tell us that the department will not talk to them.
, people noticed. all run the country, it was on cnn, msnbc, it was in the newspapers, and people started saying, what in the world is going on in virginia? not only does this get visibility, but one day, thanks to the extraordinary organizing of women, not only women in now, but throughout the women's movement in virginia, the day that the legislators were going to go to the house of delegates and vote, 1500 women lined the sidewalks and formed a conflict that the legislators had to walk past, standing arm in arm, silent, in a silent vigil watching them walk through. that is a mobilization that was practically overnight. this was fuelled by social me the at and by passion, and outrage at these exchange lists who are overreaching like i have never seen it at any time in my life. another mobilization that we did, when lisa brown stood on the floor of the house of representatives in michigan, objecting to yet another anti- reproductive rights bill, and at the end of her remarks, she said, mr. speaker, i am glad everybody is so interested in my vagina, but no means no. lisa brown was censure
in 2003, april 8, 2003. cnn talks about a reporter died earlier in the week when a u.s. air strike hit the network baghdad headquarters. going on to north carolina. independent calller. good morning. caller: good morning. i am so glad we have al jazeera. we got a lot of information about what is going on exactly in the country. i am very thankful to that. also, i would like to see if you guys can help a little bit in the country's where you have some type of competition going on, the kids who cannot work and do not have any means. maybe they can contribute in terms of giving you some other news that are going on in the country. for example, in africa. this is very close to america and europe, and they are restoring all of the very old vestiges of africa over there. we have extraordinary things, and they are destroying everything. these are just like drug addicts, because they do not know what they are doing. somebody has to do something over there. we talk about it more and more before it gets overhead. they are controlling drugs over there. they are controlling the weapons and resourc
and freddie mac. i watched this on cnn and constantly. they kept saying the republicans wanted them to do something about fannie mae and freddie mac. senator dodd, he goes, that would be too hard. barney frank did not want it either because he wanted this. here is the thing that got them into it. the other thing is, how can they do anything about it. he got his daddy pose a job with how young is he? the vice-president has been a senator. the president does not get it. it did not know how the economy works. these are the guys in charge. just like nancy pelosi screaming about romney oppose a tax records. show as yours. she gets to be one of the first for all these other things that go into the fact. the government we need to see, their tax records, these are the people making these laws. their staffers, when they pass they did not know what was going on in dodd-frank. host: talk about some of the criticism on dodd and mr. frank. where do i begin. with a longtime member of the senate banking committee. he was part of the group that did try to deregulate wall street and capitol. whether that
, the pentagon, the f.b.i., why is this going on? we just want to know. and for that, msnbc, cnn, all the usual suspects have been saying after we're going after individual personality asks we're being mean to muslims. this has nothing to do with being mean to muslims. there are a lot of people who are upset about radical terrorism too. we believe that the administration needs to keep the can safety and security of the american people number one. and so why i'm in trouble now. every day i'm in trouble for something. who cares? who cares? [laughter] >> congresswoman, thank you so much for being here. >> thank you. >> i'm going to make a couple of comments and i will ask a question. i grew up in a private school up until the third grade and then i went to public school and i feel like the education of our generation is deteriorating under the public school system. and i listened to the david bartman a couple of weeks ago and he goes around and he talks about the christian fundamental values that was in place in our founding fathers and how they taught that. first congress made a bible, a congress
a terrible thing. he is sending the wrong message that if you get rich, you are evil. host: that is from cnn yesterday with "the situation room." john sununu apologized for questioning the president to attack american is a winning into jobs. -- americanism when it came to jobs. caller: i do not like the idea that the mainstream media is not covering all of what is being said, especially mitt romney's site back. obama has been able to light and perpetuate all kinds of things because he has nothing to run on. it is sickening to me to see how can just make up lies and go with it. if you say it enough and do not hear the counter, people believe it. obama has insult to americans from the moment he took office. i predicted he would not put his hand on the bible. he did. he missed up the word . in the white house, he did not put his hand on the bible. it was no longer necessary. he has consulted police officers -- he has in so that police officers from the moment he took office. expect-othing to a suspec insulting. he has done nothing for our nation. he has trampled on the constitution. that is not
. this is from cnn and department of justice. if the poorest cannot get id, how can they get the vital services they need? cleveland, marty, republican, what do you say? caller: i think that opposition by democrats to these voter id cards, because they are playing the cheap. they want folks who shouldn't be voting to be voting. lack of voter identification is a way they cheat. black folks can do whatever they want to do. they can take advantage of every government program that's available. they can get in low income housing. they can sign up for obama phones and get welfare. they can do anything they want to do. they won't go vote. if the racist were opposed to black folks voting in the black and figure out all they had to do was require a voter id, they would have done it a long time. i don't believe this is an issue at all. there's no problem with low income folks. most old folks don't go to the polls anyway. they vote absentee at home. they wanted folks registering for driver's license to be able to register for to be able to vote at that time. now all a sudden, folks can't get id. that's
mac. isn't it amazing, i watched this on your -- on cnn constantly. they kept saying the republicans wanted them to do something about it and all senator dodd, one of anglo's friends he said that would be too hard and frank didn't want it either because he's the one who pushed this. so here's the thing that got us into it and those two slimes wouldn't do anything about it. senator dodd got his daddy's job when hall young was there. he's been is you canning off the. the presidents don't get it. don't know how the economy works and these are the guys in charge just like nancy pelosi and harry reid screaming for romney's tax records show us yours. and she says that's a different thing. yeah she gets to be one of the first for ipos and all the other things. the senate and the government that we need to see their tax records. these are the people making these laws just like these laws in health care. their staffers end up putting what's going in them. when they pass they did not know what was going into dodd frank. host: talk about some of the criticism that has come down on mr. dodd and
, which i did not think is a good idea? i watched c-span, cnn, fox, and msnbc and it seems like between the -- it is so clear to me how the republicans are distorting the truth and very seldom do i care to the democrats distorting the truth. but my biggest question is, with the grover norquist tax thing and going over the cliff, if you have ever watched lawrence o'donnell on msnbc, he is encouraging everyone to go over the cliff because of that will go away with the bush tax cuts and everybody would be the to vote to lower the tax rates like grover norquist likes. could you talk about the idea of going over the cliff as being a good idea question of guest: first, let me quickly addressed the issue of the payroll tax holiday. we are in our second year of that. social security actuary, a nonpartisan independent guy looks at that and said very conclusively that in no way will it affect the solvency of the social security system. the reason for that is, for every penny not flowing into the system through payroll taxes, the law provides that the general fund will compensate the social securi
to cnn the federal government overpaid $14 billion in unemployment benefits just last year. that means 11% of all jobless benefits paid out were not supposed to be paid to those individuals. those overpayments that should have gone to people in need were sent by government to those who didn't deserve any money. you see, not all payments are to honest people who are looking for jobs and are out of work. inmate grimminger's case is bad, but there's more. a convicted killer, murderer in a california prison was receiving at least $30,000 in unemployment checks. the murderer made sure that his family and his friends cashed his checks while he was locked up. so each month his family fraudulently cashed his $1,600 check which they would then deposit in his jail bank account. guess where it went next, mr. speaker? he shared the jail money with some of his low-life prison gang members while he was in the joint. there's more. the federal government reportedly sent a man $515,000 in payments over 37 years. 37 years, mr. speaker because he was supposedly unemployed. 37 years of unemployment benefits
recruiting. that's why the army spokesman on cnn said when they announced they were ending their 10-year, multidollar taxpayer funded relingtsship with nascar, quote, it was not a great investment. the navy pulled out. the marine corps pulled out of nascar years ago. yet the pentagon has paid one racing team, mr. earnhardt's team, $136 million in taxpayer funds for the national guard logo on his car and the name -- in the name of recruitment. this year, they're paying mr. earnhardt again $26.5 million to which the national guard has reported, this is what the guard told me, 20 qualified candidates expressing interest, zero, zero actual recruits. so over the past two year the national guard has spent more than $20 million in taxpayer funds on bass fishing tournaments. we're in a fiscal crisis. bass fishing is not national security. this congress is cutting money to needy families because we're in a fiscal crisis yet the pentagon is spending in excess of $80 million on nascar sponsorships, bass fishing, ultimate cage fighting and other sponsorships. it's a waste of taxpayer money, it doesn
, delaware, mike, go ahead. caller: thank you governor and thank you for cnn spavment. i wanted to let the governor know what's going on in my life. i'm in my late as, so is -- 50s, so is my wife, we're both unemployed. i'm a history teacher. now, i've been looking for a job for two years, and i can't find one, and people won't even call me back. that's what it's like for an older man or woman, trying to find a job in this economy. what's the governor got to say about that? thank you. guest: no question this is really what we've talked about earlier. although our unemployment rate is better than the national average the fact is we've got 30,000 people, including two in your household who are looking for work and this is why we've got to continue to be as focused as we can possibly be. first of all we've got to be focused on making sure we've got a nurturing environment where private sector companies employ more people and the side benefit of that important benefit is that it generates the tax revenues we need to make sure we continue to have teachers in the classroom. one thing i feel
news, nbc, abc, cnn, mns, fox business and -- msnbc, fox business. he's co-author of dick army, "give us liberty: a tea party manifesto." please welcome matt here to introduce c.l. bryant. [applause] >> how you guys doing? does anyone here believe in freedom? >> yeah! >> does anyone here think the government's spending too much money it doesn't have? >> yeah. >> ok. here's the test. does anyone think sometimes as frustrating as it is that maybe you have to beat the republicans before you can beat the democrats? [applause] ok. just wanted to make sure we are in the right place. later on today after lunch we are showing the colorado premiere of a movie that i am really proud of called "runaway slaves" and that will be showing right after lunch. and i got to tell you, money back guarantee, it's worth your time. it's powerful. you might get a little choked up, but you're definitely going to be fired up after you see this movie. please, if you can, stay for that movie. i first met c.l. on september 12, 2009. we had both walked from freedom plaza 1.3 miles up to the capitol for what turned
to interview her. the guardian, bbc, cnn, she became a bit of a celebrity in the journalism world. then one day in june a relative of hers posted on her blog that she had been kidnapped by state security or something like that. immediately people began to mobilize. they began to put together facebook pages to support her cause, creating avenue tars for people to news solidarity. some organized protests at the syrian embassies. y was very -- was very interested in finding people who knew her to find a sense of how much danger she might truly be in. as i started asking around i started getting messages from my contacts in syria and they were saying well, i'm part of the local gay community here and i never heard of here. others would say i haven't met her. each would pass me onto someone else. i got to the point i was saying does anyone know anyone who has met her in person? it final by -- finely got to the point where i contacted the reporter at the guardian who did the very first interview, interviewed her in person and he said what can you tell me about this person. what they told me is that t
publicationings including "washington post," cnn, hufferington post, financial times, "time" magazine, national journal, "daily beast." with that i think we'll invite your questions. >> i wanted to ask, recently as candidates visited virginia, that virginia could be -- is a big swing state but mostly because it's a recipient of big defense dollars. your survey would sort of disprove that headline i was wondering what your comments are on some of that coverage. >> it's important to remember that when you hear reporting about political activity, it doesn't necessarily mean that it represents public opinion. there are interests in virginia and those interests are being activated and those interests are making contributions to candidates and so on. but the individuals who are ultimately the voters, when you ask them to look at the big picture and give them the information, they come to pretty much the same conclusions. it's an interesting dynamic that in general people don't look out for themselves when they -- they are making judgments about public policy issues. but they will probably be influenc
.i.c., that has 57 states and we've got 50 -- i get confused. someone said on cnn the only reason why the president said 57 states, maybe because he was tired. some people don't understand sarcasm. but the o.i.c. but they have given millions and millions of dollars to universities in america, including some ivy-league schools. they aren't islama phobes. they have sold their soul for money. sure, if you'll give us millions, you bertscha, hundreds of thousands and, we'll teach a course on islamaphobia and denigrate the founders and denigrate those who would lay down their lives for this country's freedom and call them islamaphobes. i told the security detail at the american embassy in afghanistan's capital when i was told i was not going to be able to go meet our allies at the mas sud residence. our friend massud knows something about sacrifice. his brother possibly could have united afghanistan, but was assassinated a day or so before 9/11, because the taliban knew that he might be able to unite the country. and if the united states figured out this is where the training emanated from,
to many of you. i was out in front and i was the idiot who saw the cnn twitter and said, we won, and actually we have lost. the take away is that there is no area of their lives that is now safe from politics. we no longer have meaningful constitutional protections for individual freedoms or limitations on the power of government. that is frightening. it is tragic. but if everything is politics and politicians wheeled unlimited power, and checked by our constitution, then the solution is to work even harder and politics and make sure that the people who win and to have the unlimited power are our people who would choose not to use it or perhaps will choose to restore those checks that we have lost. it is more critical for that we get more engage to make sure that this election cycle is one that we win because this point that we're at in our history, one where we cannot count on any external checks on what happens in the democratic process that it makes it more critical than ever. fortunately, there are more of us than of them. i urge you to do everything you possibly can to win
, i wrote a piece on the cnn website, they're supposed to talk 1/10 of 1 percent, lose 40 percent of net worth. suspended habeas corpus. the court would have been in session 24/7, and it would be a human tragedy of a proportion we can't imagine as a nation. my god, the job creators, the wealth creators that lost 40 percent of their net worth. what's going to happen at the hamptons? somebody is going to have to drive their own car. the median family in this country lost 40 percent of its entire net worth in a two-year period and nobody yawned. host: rick is on the phone from wesley chapel, florida, good morning. caller: good morning gentlemen. i got a question for you. i would imagine both of you sitting there are very rich men. and not one of you has said anything about what the income for the middle class should be. in florida, my wife and i, we make $70,000 a year and we're middle class. $70,000 a we're in new york city would not make you middle class. host: that's right. guest: we talk about it in the book. guest: if i live in florida, and my name is 67 years old and i have a c
the health care opinion on its website, accessible to the public, we would not have had reports over cnn and fox news that incorrectly characterized what the holdings were in the case. people in the main offices were not able to read the decision the same way people in the press office were reading it. it is always nice when news organizations want to cover the courts. i've always appreciated when local news organizations go to washington. sometimes, the man reporters go to the sticks to report on the case. they write articles about it in the washington post or the new york times. have been more press coverage, all the better. also, making the decisions readily available to the public service an important role. hopefully, next time, the court will be prepared to of web servers that work. >> all of the listeners know to go to these three gentlemen for their expert opinion. clark? sorry if i am wrong with discriminating against questions. >> i want to go pick up on a theme that david started. if you look at the confirmation hearings for judge roberts, what you see is the dominant theme was
was there in the court on thursday. it was frightening. i understand why fox news and cnn got it wrong immediately. i think all of us did sitting in the court as we heard chief justice roberts, on so passionately about why there are actually a limit on the commerce clause. the language is incredible. the founders gave the ability to regulate the commerce clause, not to mandate it. even if the individual mandate is necessary, such an expansion of federal power is not a proper means for making those reforms effective. those could have come from any of my breeds or ran these writings or david oral arguments. -- this could have come from any of my breach. -- breeks -- briefs. i was not quite sure what was going on. ultimately, i think it was a political decision. it is really hard to make sense of the chief justice's opinion. it seems he made this tactical decision for something, as in the famous film "a man for all seasons." purge yourself and your legal sold to get something else. here, i am not sure what she'd justice roberts is saving his court for, and this may jeopardize my future availability for
] or those unforgettable moments in cnn, hanging chads. i wish i would have the presence of tim russert to transcend technology with a simple chalkboard. to look ateral ways this election. all of them lead to the conclusion that this will be a very close outcome. this is more stark this share then usual. the conditions versus the candidates. they decided majority of american voters believe the country is on the wrong track. most believe they're not better off than they were four years ago. that is bad news for a incumbent. many republicans acknowledge that as of today obama is a much better political candidates than his opponent. mitt romney has the highest negative rating of eastoany rect challenger. what about demographics versus the economy? voter profiles become a bigger part of democrats. on the other hand, no president has ever been collected since world war ii with an unemployment rates over 8%. 8% on election day will be on the optimistic side. money versus mobilization. what citizens united and the proliferation of political action committees, the republicans will have a money
on the white house detail for cnn. if you have somebody who looks like me with less care, that is my byounger brother. >> dad was upi? >> in its heyday. i remembered as a kid that we only had one car growing up so we would take my dad to work in the morning and the company afternoon. we parked and 14th street and i looked at the national press club that he would be sitting there typing away with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and a bottle of whiskey in the drawer. >> we are about to invade your city. >> i can't wait. >> what do you hope we will remember about tampa? >> for most people coming to tampa, it is an untapped market. some of you in this room have never been to temple before so it is a mid-sized american city hosting an international event and other the olympics will be the most watched television this year. tampa is a place where i hope people walk away with a sense of a city i did not know anything about. it is a city i would like to potentially come and visit again and invest in. it is a really neat place. >> the convention itself will be in the tampa bay form. someone said
